Review by AtomicCrimsonRush
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars This Yes concert is one of their best with outstanding sound quality beginning with the trademark 'Intro/Firebird suite' to the awesome power of 'Starship trooper'. The best lineup of Yes play their greatest songs and it is a truly wonderful and remarkable achievement that they can sing and play so well at this late stage of their exceptional career.

There are so many highlights it is difficult to mention them all but of note are the tracks on CD1 'Going for the one', 'Your move/Ive seen all good people', 'Mind drive Part 1 and 2', 'South side of the sky' and 'Yours is no disgrace.'

CD 2 features the acoustic set and we hear Howe playing to perfection in 'The meeting room/The meeting'. The acoustic versions of 'Long distance runaround', 'Wonderous stories' and 'Roundabout' are interesting, but I prefer the original arrangements. I do like the acoustic version of 'Owner of a lonely heart' as a change of pace. Jons vocals are in force here unlike the latter years where he struggled. The bassist Squire is having a blast too. Alan White is an incredible drummer. With Wakeman, it is the best Yes lineup.

They strap back on their electric equipment for the next tracks, 'Rhythm of love', and my personal favourite of the CD, 'And you and I'. This track is a show stopper and features a wonderful keyboard by Wakeman with a sense of timelessness and majesty. 'Ritual' is the 19 minute epic from 'Topographic' and is a crowd pleaser, and then they play the early classic, 'Every little thing'. As mentioned it ends with the brilliant 'Starship Trooper'.

Grab hold of the DVD for an immersive experience as you climb aboard the Yes express.
